|Silent Earthquakes -- Groks Science Show 2006-12-27 - Charles Lee and Frank Ling|
Most of us know earthquakes by their ground breaking nature but what has intrigued seismologists recently are silent earthquakes. On this program, Paul Segall discussed the significance of these imperceptible ground movements. Chuck McMinn also joined us to discuss combined heat and power energy systems at his winery Vineyard 29.

|Fracking -- Groks Science Show 2013-08-28 - Charles Lee and Frank Ling|
Hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, has been lauded as the solution to the peak oil problem, and will provide hundreds of years of cheap energy. But, the reality is very different. On this program, Richard Heinberg discussed the false promises of fracking.
